I posed in boats and motors section as well but thought I may get a few more views here.I've lost power. Ran fine this morning. Idles fine. Boggs down when I try to get on plane. Any ideas?

it may be pulling a vacuum on the line. Shut the motor down, squeeze the primer bulb several times then try again. There may be a small piece of trash in the line blocking a good flow to the motor.

Fuel filters
Fuel line leak allowing air in causing a vaccuum
Dirty Carb
STATOR
Check compression

My bet is the STATOR is going bad.

If it is a two stroke Yami it is probably the O2 sensor.

If it's a Mercury pro xs, sounds like a coil. If they have never been replaced, a few years ago Mercury had a bad lot of coils installed and started replacing as they blew.

Mine does that every now and then. Put it in reverse give it gas and then it runs fine.
